When you walk these woods you are the predator because that's what survival is all about. Be prepared to ACT, not REACT. If you come upon a hostile, you better be ready to kill him, because that's exactly what he's going to do to you. We're talking about the predator. Doing what it takes to survive. The predator trusts no one. He relies on no one. Out here, it's one to one... hand to hand.
Okay, team decision, a big one. That trail is the only path to the back woods. And our Survival Quest course isn't complete until you face the challenges to be found there. And with that bridge cut, there is only one way to get there. We have to climb that mountain.
Don't we ever do anything on the ground in this course?
I gotta tell ya, that mountain is not gonna be a cakewalk. I usually save the mountaineering for last but if you want to try, I believe you can make it.
I say we do it.
If I fall of that mountain I'm taking two of you with me.
Look Gray, I know we've had problems. You resent me, think I'm an authority figure with a system, here to push you around. You're wrong. You're dead wrong. I'm a lot like you, buddy. I had no family, I had no brothers or sisters, I had nobody. Been pushed from foster home to foster home. Then when I was 12 I got a foster parent, and I called him 'Dad.' Because he showed me all this.
I had a few dads who just wanted to show me a belt.
Yeah, I had a couple of those meatheads too. But this guy put me in the Boy Scouts. Before then I didn't have a shirt or a pair of pants that didn't have a tear in it.
Now here I am in my own f***ing Boy Scout uniform! Yeah. He died when I was 16, and I never got a chance to thank him. You believe that? I'm no authority figure. I mean, I may risk my ass to help you out, I've never told you what to do. It's not like in the city. There's no low man on the totem pole out here. So what are we gonna do, Gray? Spend the rest of our lives mad, bad and sad?
